Call from a close friend, he and his wife and sister in a head on collision and in the hospital - could I come. By sheer luck, they all survived, battered and bruised but alive. The wife has a broken sternum and undergoing tests for heart and arterial damage. My friend was in the back seat, no seat belt, and he flew to the windshield, lost consiousness for a while but will be okay. Sister has banged up knee. It could have been so much worse and there are many of us grateful tonight that lives were spared. I treasure the few friends I have.
